About the Event
With special thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund we are delighted to bring you this fantastic two-week Ancient Roman inspired ceramics workshop here at MBC Arts Wellbeing.
Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of ceramics when you take part in this fantastic two week ceramics session. During the first session, and with support from our expert tutor you will learn the different ceramic techniques needed to make your Roman inspired ceramic pieces that will be displayed in our exhibition. Throughout the session you will be provided with informative and engaging historical knowledge about Roman pottery and how they created their ceramicware. You will also learn all about how the Romans were master craftspeople, as many Roman items have been found fully intact during excavations.
Throughout the second session you will be able to work with a range of materials including slip and learn techniques such as sgraffito to decorate the items you made during the first session. At the end of the session, we will fire all items in our kilns and the finished products will be displayed in our exhibition, where you will have access to attend and view the project in its entirety.
The first session will take place on Thursday 1st September 2022, 10am - 12:30pm
The second session will take place on Thursday 8th September 2022, 10am - 12:30pm
Please note, you will NOT be able to take items home with you, all items will be displayed in our exhibition, which focuses on the Ancient Roman way of life and its influences on society today.
